First Baptist Church’s College Ministry seeks to provide opportunities for today’s college students to invade their culture with the love of Jesus Christ. Students attend colleges in our community, in the state, and nationally and we want our church to be a launch pad for each one to express their faith in a world that needs to see the love of Christ.

College/ Career Retreat is coming up!
So what is the College/Career Retreat?
College/Career Retreat (September 18-19) is simply what its name says, it’s a time to get away, a retreat for you. The format is similar to a D-Now in that there will teaching of God’s Word combined with worship. Of course the difference is that we are not at host homes or staying at a church, but rather we are in cabins at the Rose of Sharon retreat center. We will have group discussion times as well as intentional time for you to spend in quiet time. But we will also have times of fun and relaxation for you!
Game of Thrones. The focus during our study time is going to be learning about God and Jesus Christ and simply who they are!
$20, which covers everything. We will have a meal Friday night and then breakfast Saturday morning provided. You will need to bring a sleeping bag or sheets for your bed and a towel for your shower, but outside of that, everything else is covered for you!
Who can come?
Anybody that is in college or in a career. They do not have to be a member of our church and they do not have to be in school only.
When and where?
We will meet at the church on Friday night (September 18) at 6 p.m. to take the bus together. We will return before lunch on Saturday (September 19). We are staying at the Rose of Sharon retreat center in Burlison, TN (where Christmas city is held). If you have to drive due to work or school that is fine.
How do I signup?
Simply let Joseph know that you want to come or bring your $20 to the event desk or church to get registered. Please sign up ASAP!
What do we do in our College/Career group?
1. We meet.
The College and Career Life Group invites you to join us Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m. for Bible study in our Family Life Center. Grab you a cup of coffee, maybe even a donut, and hear life application teaching.
Our midweek worship and Bible study meets on Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. This is led by Bro. Joseph Brasher and deals with relevant topics that affect students today.
2. We greet
We are constantly looking for ways to connect with students of similar age. It may be that we have socials during Christmas break, cookouts for the summer, or any kind of activity where we can sit back and relax!
College Retreat- September 18-19 ($20/person)
College/Career Bonfire- October 14 (Grove)
Passion Conference- January 2-4 ($165/person- due December 1)
3. We reach.
Sharing the love of Christ is vital to all of us, but especially to our college students. We want everyone to be missionaries wherever they are, so that if it’s in a classroom or in a work meeting, people know that there is something different about us as followers of Christ!
Ways that we seek to connect with local college students:
Southwest Community College breakfast- Southwest Millington campus- 1st Wednesday (September-December) of each month, 8:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m.
